Glendale: Dinner at El Morfi Grill

linguine pescatore


What I love about growing up and living in Los Angeles are all the different cuisines I have tried through the years without ever having to take a plane somewhere. And that there is so much world history you can learn just by eating dinner. One such place is El Morfi Grill in Glendale. There you can have Argentine food with an Italian and Spanish twist.

We started out with a couple of empanadas (not shown) and I told my friends why our chicken one looked a little different from the beef one. The different twists to close the empanadas indicated which ones they were.

chicken soup

All the entrees came with soup or salad. I opted for a chicken soup which came with a ton of veggies.


I loved how bright and cheerful the side salad was.

pechuga a la parrilla


One friend decided on the pechuga a la parrilla which is a grilled chicken breast. It’s not as boring as it sounds as it comes with mashed potatoes and veggies.

I got the linguine pescatore (shown above). It had so much seafood including mussels, clams, shrimp, calamari and scallops. I did ask for white sauce but was given red sauce. I just took it as the red sauce was more popular.


seafood paella

My other friends ordered the seafood paella for two. Like my seafood pasta, this paella had clams, mussels, shrimp as well as an abundance of rice.

asada de tira


The asada de tira are juicy short ribs. All of us took home leftovers (well, except for my friend with the chicken). We enjoyed the friendly service and they even gave us theater tickets as we were leaving for a show across the street at the Alex Theatre.

Where are we jetsetting next by not actually leaving the city? On to exploring more cuisines in 2018!
